The English Premier league is better than the Spanish La La liga: football(soccer)

beastdebater

As my very first debate I would like to debate about something other than politics or religion so I chose my favorite sport. The Premier League and the La Liga are regarded by most people as the two best football leagues in the world. But it is often debated which one is the best, so I hope that I will get an opponent willing to debate me. I (pro) will be arguing that the Premier league is the better league. My opponent (con) will be arguing that the La Liga is the better league. My argu...

The New England Patriots are the greatest team in the last 25 years, because they are the only 18-0 team to ever play the game in the last 25 years. This is also based on Statistics.

They win games against every team by 38-17 on average of every time in the last 25 years....

The question of whether one should give up his property to another is a decision that should be left entirely up to the rightful owner of said property. For example, it is a nice gesture to give to charity, take out the trash for your elderly neighbor, or to just be kind in general, but it is typically a matter of free will as to whether an individual chooses to partake in these acts of kindness. If these once-voluntary deeds were suddenly forced upon us by our government, I think most would con...

Cricket is a better sport than baseball

karththegeld
rofflewoffles

I thank my opponent in advance for accepting this debate. In my opinion, cricket is better than baseball as far as sports go. Here is why: 1) Cricket bats are more fun to play with than baseball bats. The flat surface allows for more variety in shot selection. With baseball bats, all anyone can do is hit it straight on, and that is not fun. 2) Bowling is better than pitching. Though there are plenty of different pitches (i.e. curveball, sinker, etc), there is not much else you can do t...

Hello. My name is Keenan Harris. Before I start my debate I would like to thank my opponent for taking time out of his/her day to debate me, and I would like to thank the judges for taking time out of their day to read this debate and make intelligent decisions on who should, or should not be, the winner. It is because of you that Debate.org functions. Now onto my debate. Skateboarding should be banned. After you think about it, this statement couldn't seem any more true. As we all know, Urba...
